3.73/5  rDev -8.1%

A: Pours a great tea color slightly reddish with hardly any foam and after first half was poured made an aggressive attempt at some foamy goodness on top.

S: Aroma is a bit complex theres a good bit going on with some hefty malts and a woderful hoppy balance. Earthy yet some pine notes tucked away in there. Theres still a sense of spice in there that eludes me think its a bit like clove but not quite also is a mild peppery aroma.

T: Taste is a nice balance of malt and hops, a sweet starting sip and then the hops tickle the tongue splashing pine and zesty citrus all about the taste buds.

M: Mouthfeel is a medium bodied and lightly carbed.

O: Overall a great drinker... would love to be able to drink this bad mofo all day, but sadly because of the elevated ABV dont think I could hang with the big dogs...so I will just sit here on the porch and watch them while I sip away, or should I say slip away !

Pours copper tinted amber body with a medium off-white head. The nose is of light caramel and toffee sweetness with a big NW grapefruit hop. Very hop forward nose with nice resinous sweet nose. The flavor is malty and sweet with a caramel and bready malt combined with huge hop grapefruit. The finish is moderately well hopped with a dry rensious finish. Overall, a nice ale!
